Workshop: Architectural Photography


Join Floto + Warner to learn the basics of architectural photography, using Clear Comfort as subject. The husband-and-wife team will share their own work, give insight into their process, and provide an introduction to photographing interior and exterior spaces. They will discuss technical aspects, such as perspective control lenses, lighting, and vantage points. Instruction includes time to shoot your own images of Clear Comfort with Paul Moakley, Senior Photo Editor at Time, on hand for critique.

Floto+Warner is a New York based photography duo. Their striking images capture not only the spatial dynamics of their architectural subjects, but also the human and social energy and spirit of the place. Their photos appear in such magazines as TimeW Magazine, and Wallpaper. Their clients include Prada, Volkswagen and Verizon.
